The media quoted sources as saying that Microsoft will release GDR3 version WP system to adapt to the 1080P resolution screen.
Microsoft plans to upgrade Windows Phone 8 mobile operating system to support 1080p resolution screen. The sources familiar with Microsoft WP upgrade program revealed that the company will release the upgrade later this year to support 1080P resolution and 5 inches or larger equipments. The WP8 currently only supports WVGA, WXGA and 720P resolution.
The upgrade is called the GDR3 version Windows Phone, which is for the new equipments to be unveiled in the holiday season. HTC had originally planned to release the “Zenith” flagship phone, which is with 4.7-inch display and quad-core processor, but it has been reported that the company canceled the program, because the device’s screen resolution is lower than the competitors’ products.
Microsoft upgrades will be released as part of the new equipment, which is not directly related to Microsoft’s Windows Phone Blue plan. The Windows Phone Blue is tentatively scheduled to be released in early 2014, used to eliminate the difference of the Microsoft Windows operating system and Windows Phone 8 system. Microsoft plans to bring more synchronization points such as the unity of the browser to further integrate the two operating systems.
